Meaning of Safana

Safana is an indirect Quranic name for girls whose original meaning is “pearl”, and Arabs used it as a synonym for “daughter”, maybe as a loving nickname. It is derived from the S-F-N root, which is also the root for Safeena (“ship”), and it is used in a number of places in the Quran.

Then the two went forth until, when they embarked on the ship, he made a hole in it, whereupon Moses exclaimed: “Have you made a hole in it so as to drown the people in the boat? You have certainly done an awful thing.” (Quran 18:71)
